CIRI receives national minority procurement award

CIRI was awarded the “Alaska Native Corporation of the Year” award from the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED), a national nonprofit organization dedicated to developing Native American economic self-sufficiency.

CIRI Vice President of Government Contracting Greg Razo accepted the award on Aug. 5 at NCAIED’s 7th Annual Native American Procurement Conference in Tulalip, Wash. The conference brings together Native American suppliers and firms with federal, state and corporate contracting officers or buyers, as well as holding workshops and seminars on contracting and procurement topics.
